PRECOLLEGE SUMMER INSTITUTES

Precollege Summer Institutes are designed for advanced high school students who wish to gain academically challenging college-level experience. The minimum age requirement is 14 as of September 1. Programs may have additional eligibility requirements. Please visit the program website for more information.

The Art Summer Institute (Session B ONLY), Game Lab Summer Institute, Immersive International Studies Summer Institute, and the Writing Summer Institute: Introduction to College Writing are commuter programs and do not provide housing options for its participants. All other Precollege Summer Institutes including the Art Summer Institute (Session A) offer a mandatory residential plan, which includes supervision.

All applicants and their parent/legal guardians are required to complete a Waiver of Liability (Minor / Adult), a Program Participant Agreement (Residential / Non-Residential), and a Questionnaire in order to participate in Precollege Summer Institutes. Please note that you will be asked to complete all required documents again whenever adding a new program, switching to another program, or re-enrolling in the same program after cancellation.

To find out if the program of your choice is open for registration, please refer to the table below. You will see whether the program is currently accepting applications, is waitlisted, or is no longer accepting applications (closed). If a residential plan is required for your chosen program, housing availability is also indicated.

COLLEGE/PROFESSIONAL SUMMER INSTITUTES

College/Professional Summer Institutes deliver an experience that goes beyond the traditional classroom. The minimum eligibility requirement for College/Professional Summer Institutes is a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent. Additional eligibility requirements vary by program. Please visit the program website for more information.

Most of the programs coincide with the UCLA summer housing periods, and participants in those programs may apply for UCLA on-campus or off-campus housing through UCLA Housing Services.

All applicants must agree to the Waiver of Liability (Minor / Adult) and a Program Participant Agreement (Minor / Adult) as part of consideration for allowing participation. Any applicant who is under 18 at the time of submitting this registration form must have a parent/legal guardian complete the Waiver of Liability and the Program Participant Agreement. Please note that you will be asked to complete all required documents again whenever adding a new program, switching to another program, or re-enrolling in the same program after cancellation.

To find out if the program you are interested is still open for registration, please see the table below. You will see whether the program is currently accepting applications, is waitlisted, or is no longer accepting applications (closed).

NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT

For those who register before the program payment deadline (5PM, May 1, PDT), a nonrefundable deposit ($400 for international students; $150 for all others) is required to reserve your space in the program. Please be sure of your intention to register as this deposit is NOT refundable. The nonrefundable deposit is not an additional fee and will apply toward your summer balance.

After the payment deadline, full payment of the program fee, including the nonrefundable deposit, is required in order to secure a space in the program. Please note that other additional fees,such as the Document Fee and Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee, may apply and that all additional fees must be paid on MyUCLA after payment of the program fee.

For programs that require instructor consent for admission or are waitlisted, no payment is due until admission is given or a space becomes available for you from the waitlist.

If you are not ready to pay at the time of registration submission, you can later retrieve the registration form to make the required payment. Once a valid payment is made, your registration is complete and your spot will be reserved.

Payment can be made by credit card or electronic check using the secure CASHNet SmartPay system. All credit card transactions made through CASHNet SmartPay are subject to a nonrefundable 2.75% service fee. There is no transaction fee for electronic check payments.

FEES AND PAYMENT DEADLINES

Fees for Summer Institutes vary by program and student status, among other factors. All applicants must review the applicable program website for information on fees, payment and refund policies and procedures.

If registered before the payment deadline, your remaining balance reflecting the nonrefundable deposit must be paid in full through MyUCLA by 5PM, May 1, PDT. After 5PM, May 1 (PDT), applicants are prompted to pay the program fee to register. After registration, students must check the BruinBill account and pay the remaining balance on MyUCLA. Delinquency in payment of other applicable fees may result in enrollment cancellations, holds on academic records, and/or collection actions.

SUMMER SCHOLARS SUPPORT FOR CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

Students who attend high schools in California and enroll in one of our precollege Summer Institutes may be eligible for UCLA Summer Scholars Support. Visit Summer Scholars Support for more information.

Other visiting high school students should check with their home institution or private organizations for financial aid opportunities.

FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE/PROFESSIONAL SUMMER INSTITUTES

UCLA financial aid is intended only for eligible UCLA students.

Visiting UC students may apply for financial aid for their participation in UCLA Summer Sessions directly with their home UC campus Financial Aid Office.

All other students should consult with their home institution for financial aid opportunities.

REFUNDS

Please note that summer offerings are subject to change without prior notice. Changes include, but are not limited to, meeting time and location changes, instructor substitutions, and course/program cancellation. Reasonable efforts will be made to notify students of such changes and to suggest alternatives when applicable. In the event of cancellation, the University is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result.

Enrolled Students

The following policy applies to all enrolled students, i.e., students who have submitted the required payment for registration.

The nonrefundable deposit may NOT be refunded under ANY circumstances. The remaining balance of all applicable charges excluding the nonrefundable deposit will be reversed if the program is dropped or cancelled before 5PM, June 1, PDT.

No fees are refundable after 5PM, June 1, PDT.

Please refer to your program website and see PROGRAM WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICY under FEES AND PAYMENT for details.

Non-Enrolled Students

Students who are not enrolled, i.e., those who have only submitted the online registration form but have not made the required payment to complete registration, may cancel their online registration form at any time with no financial penalty.
